, representative from the sixteenth district of illinois, donald manzullo. >> mr. speaker, secretary clinton, mrs. bush, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, my family. i come before you today to humble the welcome a legendary human rights champion, aung san suu kyi, for a ceremony many of us never thought would happen. surely foreign affairs subcommittee asia pacific, up when my friend joe crowley worked to pass the gold medal in 2008, aung san suu kyi was serving her thirteenth year under house arrest incarcerated for exercising freedom of speech and daring to challenge a military and the. your presence here is nothing short of a miracle. patriots succeed because of miracles. the sound of freedom can never be silenced. is a testament to the incredible strength of your convictions and the depth of your aspirations for burma to achieve democracy. you have made the time to visit us during this momentous visit. aung san suu kyi is someone who needs no introduction because there are no words to adequately describe the sacrifice this woman has in toward for 15 years. we know the incredible sto
was reelect, longer than president clinton. but today president obama did it. he announced today that he wants senator john kerry to be his next secretary of state to replace hillary clinton. one of the reasons we may have had this announcement today, as andrea mitchell pointed out today, is that the white house finally had time to deal with this issue only because congress cleared the deck when the republicans and congress all decided to give up and go home and submarine their own speaker last night. that unexpectedly left some time for making announcements today. >> i'm very proud to announce my choice for america's next secretary of state, john kerry. he has earned the respect and trust of his senate colleagues, democrats and republicans. i think it's fair to say that few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our foreign policies as firmly as john kerry. and this makes him a perfect choice to guide american diplomacy in the years ahead. >> now senate republicans are not expected to oppose senator kerry's nomination. republicans were the ones, in fact, who suggeste
four brave americans. not one person has been found. hillary clinton has yet to testify, leon panetta has yet to testify and we know nothing about what the president did for seven hours during the attack on september 11th itself and they have made two movies about his leadership in the bin laden raid and they are stonewalling this. this is like pulling teeth. i'm getting very frustrated and quite frankly tired of this. >> secretary clinton said she'll of it. she's had a concussion. >> and that's true. she was sick. and she will of it. >> all right. secretary of defense pennetta didn't have a concussion so where is his testimony? let me ask you one other question. senator kerry has been nominated for secretary of state. he's the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. so is he going to chair this when they do of it? >> i don't know. you asked me a good question, does he have a conflict of interest. people would second guess was he too tough, not tough enough. that's something john needs to think about, whether or not to lead that hearing. but she'll of it and i want to know
. >> and all that matters. >> hillary clinton plans to go back to work just in time for the new year. >> two reather than get angry and you show it you live a lot longer. >> he gives a speech about hitting the debt ceiling! i'd like to see if he could even count to 1 million much less 16.4 trillion! captioning funded by cbs >> it's friday welcome to "cbs this morning," everyone. i'm jeff glor with rebecca jar sis. charlie, gayle and norah are off. there are predictions but little progress in washington with a deadline for the fiscal cliff now just four days away. >> president obama meets later today with congressional leaders in one last effort to make a deal before the deadline. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, rebecca and jeff. in just a couple of hours at the white house the president meets with all the key congressional leaders, top democrats harry reid and nancy pelosi leading republicans mitch mcconnell and john boehner. no deal can be reached in past without their cooperation. with the meeting comes a glimmer of hope. in
. awful people in the clinton administration. that is true. agreed. greed is good. hollywood movies are about greed. oliver stone tried to warn against it. instead, wall street bankers were imitating gecko, like war movies that create warmongers. at the same time, you had another explanation which had to do with the way in which the finance tapped into a competing power. -- into computing power to create complex derivatives. all that is true. but what is underlying this and the crisis and the reason why the world economy fails to recover is that this surplus recycling mechanism -- this weird, wonderful, audacious surplus recycling mechanism from 1971 which poker helped put together as the chairman of the fed -- which paul volcker helped put together is the chairman of the fed in the late 1970 fell and 1980's, it broke down. in 2008, when lehman brothers broke down, and the others followed and had to be bailed out by you, what happened was the united states of america lost its capacity to utilize its trade deficit in order to recycle other people's problems. -- profits. if you look a
. arguably he lost on the margins but ended up becoming president regardless. bill clinton did the same thing in 1992. the democratic party had a very negative image for the same reason. doing a poor job in terms of congressional leadership, which did very poorly, but then he cast a new image for the democratic party of what it represented and what it could be. that was the challenge coming into the election. the brand was so negative among folks in the middle and independent voters that somehow you need to craft a reason for people to trust republicans again, to give them the keys to the kingdom. i am not sure he ever successfully did that. i think the first presidential debate with the moment where it started. i think it was a bit late in the cycle 2 start rethinking their yen-- to start rethinking. the parties favorability is still much worse than the democrats. people see the republican party pretty negatively. even a fair number of republican-leaning voters do. i think the fundamental evidence is what people identify themselves as. for those of you who follow the polling, one of the big
jfk. back in the early 1960's. and he got a huge amount of protest. >> clinton lowered the capital gains tax and because of that a huge boom in the stock market. >> the tax cuts barely passed at the early part of 2000. why didn't they make them permanent and we could have avoid this had kind of discussion? >> tax policies extremely difficult. they put it through the so-called reconciliation process, which doesn't require 60 votes. reconciliation laws, sunset after ten years, they're not permanent and that's why this one is sunsetting, rather than having done a, you know, a long-term tax reform bill. and tax reform is very difficult. >> why can't we get sunsetting on spending, and no sunsetting on tax cuts. we shouldn't be, that's what we should be sunsetting are the spending bills. we should be talking about wind energy that needs to be sunsetted, soon. you bring up the side of the cliff that no one talks about. the sequester, the automatic spending reduction, i don't think it would be a bad thing if washington took the sequester and showed that they could cut spending. >> because
clinton actually put lots of cops in schools during his time in office through the cops in schools program. especially after columbine, he allocated even more money for that. this is an idea that not only helps prevent mass shootings, but also goes to the point criminals will always be in existence. there are always going to be criminals in society. they've always been there and always will be. >> karen finney, i don't know what's wrong with puts cops in schools. i'm going to go further. i know i'm a conservative, but i'm deeply troubled by these automatic weapons and deeply troubled by these 100-bullet magazines people carry around. and at the very least, what i'm suggesting, karen, is the background checks and the documentation has to be vastly greater than it is. vastly larger, and that includes the mental illness part, we're going to do it in the next segment. there are millions of documents that never entered the process for determining who is mentally ill. >> here's part of the problem. ask this is part of the reason that i think he's received so much criticism. his comments were so
. >>> next week secretary of state hillary clinton is going back to work at the state department after a three-week hiatus. you may recall she has been recovering from a concussion she suffered when she fainted while fighting a stomach virus. a spokesman says clinton is look forward to resuming her schedule. on that schedule, testifying before congress about the deadly attacks on a u.s. consulate in libya this past september. >>> russia is work on talks to end a 21-month-old conflict in syria. the syrian government is ready to talk with its opponents. now russian's foreign minister is calling on syria to make good on the offer. they are working with egyptian diplomats. russia expects to meet a senior american diplomat next month on the issue. >>> "stormin' norman has died. retired general norman schwartzkopf died of complications from pneumonia. he spent his entire life in the military. in vietnam, he rescued a wounded soldier by marking land mines with shaving cream. he later commanded the american- led coalition in the first iraq war. schwartzkopf was 78. >>> 5:37 now. police say a p
haven't seen that in 30 years. we go back to paying the taxes when bill clinton was president of the united states and the economy was a hell of a lot better when bill clinton was president than it is today. i don't think the fiscal cliff is all that bad a deal looking at it from the point of view of a progressive democrat. it's not perfect, but i worry about ceos that are funding fix the debt because, you know, they got us into this in the first place. i don't have a lot of faith in their ability to get us out. one more thing, you know, if there's a deal between the democrats and the republicans, i guarantee you the democrats and the republicans will make out just fine. i'm not so sure about the american people. >> governor rendell -- thanks governor dean for that one. i want to pick up on something you said about kicking the can down the roads. one of the things that had been an issue had been taking the debt ceiling conversation off the table. republicans want to keep it as a point of leverage. it sounds like it's not going to be part of whatever gets negotiated. doesn't th
. the current debate is different, do not forget. after having surpluses at the end of the clinton administration, we went into debt almost a decade ago -- deficits almost a decade ago. the problems have gotten more difficult. at the moment, we have some interesting changes. you talk about 30 years since reagan. the country is getting older, so medicare, medicaid, social security costs more, but we have also had a lot of tax cuts. revenue is at the smallest amount since 1950. if we just got revenue back up to historical average, a deficit would be about $500 billion less than a career that is. the problem with that much more smaller. economists would then say that it is not much of a problem. the history is rather sordid, you are right. host: let me go to "the national journal." three reasons why mitch mcconnell will not save the fiscal cliff negotiations. the first one, most importantly, he is missing his dance partner joe biden. he has been kept on the sidelines during negotiations. some republicans think his absence is a sign that the president is not serious about closing a dea
original. norman schwarzkopf was 78. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton will be back in the office next week. clinton has been recuperating at home from a stomach flu and a concussion suffered when she fainted and fell. her doctors have told her not to travel overseas for the next few weeks. but she is expected to testify before congress on the september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >>> put the harps back in the closet. that's the word from former president george h.w. bush's chief of staff. she says the condition of the 88-year-old former president is not dire. his family is expressing confidence that he will soon be released from an intensive care unit. he's been treated for a high fever at a houston hospital. >>> with the nation reeling from the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, and engaged in a national debate on gun control, chicago reaches a deadly milestone despite the toughest laws when it comes to owning firearms. >>> federal investigators arrested a new york city woman, they say she used the school's shooting in newtown as a way to make money. time for citi
slipped in a prison hospital bathroom earlier this month. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton sidelined no more. her spokesman says she will be back at work next week after spending the past three weeks fighting off what the state department said was a stomach flu and a concussion brought on by a fainting spell. doctors have grounded her from overseas travel for a few more weeks. her return means she may soon testify before congress about that attack on the u.s. diplomatic office in bengahzi. >>> hopefully bart, the hound dog, won't be sniffing around lake erie any more this winter. he slipped through the ice and his front paws were the only thing that kept him through the surface. his owner tried to help him, but he slipped through, too. >> i was talking to him. trying to keep him warm, rub him. get flood flowing through his body. i kind of looked at it like what if it was my dog? >> they spent about 90 minutes in the frigid water before rescuers arrived. bart was cold but otherwise okay. >>> america watched as paul mccartney, bon jovi and bruce springsteen took the stage to raise mone
. but they're only going to go back to the bill clinton days. and anybody who remembers the bill clinton days and the bill clinton clinton know that is those taxes were not onerous. they didn't stop the economy from doing quite well. now, on the spending side, the president's proposing really no spending cuts until there is a grand bargain hopefully in january. but without any kind of a bargain at all before then, assuming we do go over the fiscal cliff, then there are going to be substantial cuts in military, contracting -- krirlt contract military contractors are going to feel it almost immediately. and the discretionary spending. that's everything the country does other than the military or social security or medicare. >> so i just want to get one thing straight about the tax rates. that is that the treasury department, if it senses that, yeah, they're going to get a deal here fairly quickly, could say -- can direct how much withholding employers have to take out of paychecks? is that correct? >> yes, that's right, candy. the irs, they're part of the treasury department, they do have autho
, and president obama should be in and his entire staff, including hillary clinton. i do not know if you have noticed but nancy pelosi, her eyes are consistently dilated. host: thanks for your call. let's go to indiana. caller: i think it is unfortunate boehner wants to tax people making over $1 million. [indiscernbile] this is the result of 30 years of reaganomics, and the republican party has left people with less fiscal responsibility and they have not paid for the two wars, medicare part d, not to mention the tax cuts. host: how does it end? caller: if people did not wake up and try to do what is right for future generations at will and worse. the republican party will not compromise for anything. it is not the dwight eisenhower party that had the 93% tax rate. you put the money into the interstate highway system. even abraham lincoln created land grant universities, and that was not called socialism. it was called advancing the future. host: we appreciate the call. let's go to illinois, catherine on our line for republicans. caller: yeah, hi, this is catherine. i cannot have twitter, but
and lower middle class people. so, if everybody says let's go back to the clinton tax rates, that is the clinton tax rates. also, on more spending, the iraq war, we pulled the people out. on c-span about two months ago i turned it on a senate armed services committee. one not seen anybody report this. the state department sent in private contractors at a cost greater than if we would've had our troops in there. it is a fact right now, the figures don't lie, but liars figure. host: thanks for the call. guest: the president's proposal to roll back the bush tax rates for upper-income americans would raise probably about $100 billion a year. that includes higher tax rates on income earned over $250,000, higher estate taxes, and more. it's not going to solve our deficit problem, but it will have an impact. the question is, is that enough, too much, too little, when you combine it with spending cuts, to reduce the deficit to more stable level over the years? host: what we have seen in these negotiations between the principals, how does that portend in terms of what we will see in
it done. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton will be back to work next week after three weeks off after a concussion she suffered when she fainted fighting a stomach virus. she is looking forward to resume her schedule, including testifying before congress about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya last september. >>> retired general known as "stormin' norman" has passed away. norman schwartzkopf died of complications from pneumonia yesterday in his home in florida. he was raised in the army and spent his life in fact military of. while in vietnam he famously rescued a wounded soldier by marking land mines with shaving cream. of course later he commanded the american led coalition in the iraq war. schwartzkopf was 78. >>> time now 6:10. families torn apart before they even meet their children. the political issue causing russia to ban american adoptions. >> plus it happened again. a man is killed by being shoved on the new york city subway tracks. >> and a pooch stuck in the middle of an icy lake. who jumped into action in the nick of time. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, named bart was

voting rights act. president clinton johnson told dr. king in so many words, we don't have the votes in the congress to get it out of my sight pass. dr. martin luther king junior came back to atlanta, but with a group of us. my organization was already involved. and selma, the harder the bite. the only time a person could even attempt to register to vote for the first and third mondays of each month. you had to go up a set of steps through double doors and get a copy of the so-called leaders attack. and very few people were able to pass that. a few days, late february 1963, 1965, and there is a protest in marion, alabama 35 miles from selma. marion, alabama is the hometown of martin luther king jr. an incident occurred. a young man or the name of jamel jackson tried to protect his mother by a state trooper in a few days later he died at a local hospital and selma. because of what happened to him, we decided to march from selma to montgomery. since sunday, march 7, 1965 to about this time of day, 600 of us participated in nonviolent workshop. we line up in twos to a 50 master and selm
